Opinion: Norfolk man shares “voices from the trenches” Veterans Day poem
Quiet now the guns of war, rows of crosses straight and tall
Peaceful lie the battlefields, men ever silenced, all
Whence came these brave young lads, you ask, Why now their repose here?
What form of crazed insanity could draw so many near?
A quirk of fate? The whim of kings? What brought them to this loam?
Why now in ranks eternal, do they rest so far from home?
A whisper travels on the wind, Not one, but hundreds strong
"We came to give all that we had, to right a world gone wrong"
